Certificate in Leadership Studies

The Certificate in Leadership Studies is designed to advance your leadership skills within any community context–from not-for-profit agencies to business and government.

You will acquire the skills for developing positive relationships between individuals, groups, and communities to initiate, influence, and achieve change.

The Certificate in Leadership Studies is a required component of the Bachelor of Integrated Studies (BIS) Program. It introduces four concepts:

  • Leading self
  • Leading projects
  • Leading with others
  • Leading others

UNB students who are not in the BIS Program may also take the Certificate in Leadership Studies, or take individual courses within the certificate program as credit towards their UNB degree, with permission from their faculty.

If you are not yet a UNB student, you can register in the Certificate in Leadership Studies as an individual program.


Requirements and schedules

The certificate consists of five 3 credit hour courses, all of which are available online. You may complete the certificate in person or online. Courses are offered on a rotation over fall/winter terms. See the UNB course timetable for dates and times.
